North Korea is banging the gong that their neighbors to the south are destroying their language by mixing it with other languages. A most interesting story.


"Feb. 19 (UPI) -- North Korea state media berated South Korean television programs for excessive use of words that mix the Korean language with foreign tongues.

Pyongyang propaganda service Meari said Wednesday in a rare statement referring to South Korean content, the South's use of foreign words and slang, mostly borrowed from English, are destroying the Korean language.

State media referred to talent shows and soap operas on South Korea's main networks MBC, KBS and SBS, while claiming a foreign or "mongrel" word is used in speech at least once every minute.

The mixing of foreign words forces Korean to lose its linguistic purity, Meari claimed."
